"Where do I begin...from the moment we met with Scott I knew he was going to be our photographer. His work ethic and his style of photography are beyond impeccable. Scott took his time to get to know us personally and made sure he knew what kind of photos were most important to us. During our engagement shoot he embraced the environment we picked and our pictures were stunning. Over the next few months Scott answered any and all questions I had, helped us with our timeline and gave us pointers to help make our pictures come to life. But most importantly Scott made us feel like we could just be our goofy, crazy selves. I can’t recommend Scott enough. Not only is he a talented photographer, who absolutely captured the complete vibe of our wedding, but I also consider him a friend."

"We had an absolutely amazing experience with Scott from start to finish. We went with Scott because his portfolio demonstrated that he excelled at capturing emotionally-charged, adventurous photos... and working in low-light. Given our engagement shoot and wedding plans, we knew that his skills would be the perfect fit. And boy did he deliver! Scott included an engagement shoot with our package and was incredibly patient with arranging re-shoots because we were dead set on riding in a hot air balloon for but the weather just wasn't cooperating for a while. Once we finally got up in the air, we could not have been more thrilled with our photos-- they were unique, gorgeous, professional, and timely! As our wedding season progressed, Scott was incredibly thorough and organized. He did a great job of specifying all the photos we wanted for our big day so we weren't scrambling with requests on the day of. He was always just a phone call away but he also has a great online portal with tools to help you view your contract, preference sheets, shoot lists, and orders that are accessible 24/7. Once the big day came, he was prompt, supportive, and flexible. He brought an excellent team with him-- a highly skilled 2nd shooter and assistant that really made our photos the cream of the crop. They really helped with lighting, covering concurrent events, and adjusting our looks. By having this team, I was assured that they captured every moment beautifully. They were able to stay engaged to capture each moment while staying in the background enough such that we never felt like they intruded on something personal. He got everything we wanted on our "must shoot list" and had no trouble with last minute requests for things I wanted pictures of like a handmade ring box from my grandfather. I also got great feedback from our venue and DJ about working with him. He worked very well with our other vendors to ensure a seamless day for us :) It's worth mentioning that we had a wintertime wedding at a local ski resort. He and his team were great sports about freezing away and walking through snow to get the pictures we wanted. They even rode a ski lift to help get some big epic getaway shots! After the big day, Scott worked tirelessly to edit our photos and design a beautiful album for us. He was incredibly polite and responsive for every single revision we requested... And I'm sheepish to admit how many revisions it was! Overall, excellent customer service to make sure that he was giving us the perfect product. In the end, we got a wedding album more beautiful than we imagined that captures the best day of our lives to date. I really worry that this review does not do him justice. Just do yourself a favor, book him before someone else does! You will not regret it!"

"I considered our photographer to be the most important vendor we would hire for the wedding, that being said; without question Scott was the best possible choice we could have made. From the first couple emails, to our consultation at his office, we all meshed instantly. He is funny, extremely sweet, and very serious about his work. One thing that I absolutely love about him, and his team (Chuck and Bryan), was that they always made sure you were having fun. We even got them involved in an old Scottish ceremony we did at the wedding (so, sorry guys, you're all part of the family now!). Scott and his whole team made the entire process feel effortless, at least on our end, given that I know Bryan was in a bush at one point... and I may have kicked my high heels right in his face (couldn't get out of them fast enough!!). I can't thank them enough for everything that they did. My husband and I cannot wait to see our photos when they are done, and we are already in love with the teaser one that Scott sent us! So, in short; if you want a wedding photographer that will capture the most breathtaking pictures that you have ever seen, but will also make you laugh and truly forget that the camera is there, SMJ Photography is the absolute best possible choice!!"

"Words could never express the talent and passion Scott (and his team) have for photography. My new husband and I were absolutely honored to have SMJ Photography for our wedding day! The entire process was absolutely seamless. Scott was in constant communication with me, making sure he knew my exact vision for my pictures and our big day. Scott and his team were a delight the day of the wedding, and his assistant took impeccable care to make sure my cathedral veil and the train of my dress looked flawless in every shot (thanks for the help with that!). Scott is extremely professional, prompt, friendly, and SO much fun! He would do absolutely anything to get the perfect photographs for his clients. The sneak peek photos we have thus far are better than I could have ever envisioned. Thank you, Scott, for making our special day what dreams are made of. I truly have nothing but kind words to say about you and your team. I cannot recommend SMJ Photography highly enough! We think the world of you."
